Are you having a hard time taking this dress seriously? You are not alone. But make no mistake: if I had this dress in my closet, I would totally and most definitely wear it. Where, you ask? Anywhere! To the grocery store, post office, night clubs, at work, at Sweet Life Patisserie…a-n-y-w-h-e-r-e.

If you live in Eugene, you probably understand that showing up dressed like that earns you brownie points instantly. I bet I would get a free dessert at Sweet Life if I showed up in the Obama dress! We all love Obama around here!

This dress was actually shown on a legitimate catwalk in Rome last month. It was part of Italian fashion house Gattinoni Haute Couture Spring-Summer collection 2009, during the AltaRomAltaModa. I have no idea how they made it so cool, which is why I am not a designer. :) The round symmetry head-to-toe is stunning, and check out that red zig-zag running through the model’s middle body…all made of Obama’s features/shadows! Lovely.

I am inspired to make my own now. Although mine is going to be made of an Obama t-shirt, cut-out to look like a short blouse-dress type-of-thing, and accessorized properly.

Hehehehe…CHANGE is here!

    Somehow, the above comment does not seem that improbable. 😛
